Well, what a way to start a new month, with snow all over the place! Winter has seemed very reluctant to let Spring take over, but hopefully things will warm up in the coming weeks now.
And the cold weather didn’t stopped February from being an eventful month. Following on from my January 2018 Favourites, it’s now time to look through what I’ve been enjoying in February. And even though it’s the shortest month, I seem to have packed quite a bit in! So I hope you enjoy this post and video for February.

After a very eventful and successful 2017, I’ve been looking forward to seeing what 2018 would bring. And this year I want to try and get into the habit of doing monthly favourites posts, so you can get a good overview of what I’ve been enjoying, both out and about and at home. That way I can cover little things that I wouldn’t otherwise mention, as well as the bigger stuff that I’ve written longer posts on, which I’ll link to here.
So this is the first post, for January. This month I’ve been mostly doing things indoors given the cold weather outside. So I’ve been going out to various museums, and have also been to the theatre, while at home I’ve been watching a couple of the DVD sets I bought last year, to catch up on those. And I’m also making an effort to start listening to more audiobooks this year, as I only did one in 2017, which was bad of me (although, to be fair, book-reading wasn’t top of my to-do list having just moved to a huge city!).
So I’ve been keeping myself entertained in various ways, and I hope you enjoy this post and video recap of the month!

Following on from my review of the Harry Potter Studio Tour, in this post and video I want to show you the merchandise I bought in relation to it.
Up until now, I only owned the audiobooks, the Ultimate Edition Blu-rays (which replaced earlier DVD version of the films I had), and downloads of the film soundtracks. So this is the first time I’ve really got into buying Harry Potter themed stuff apart from that – with one slight exception that I’ll mention later, but basically I’ve never bought any other merchandise before.
There’s so much to buy in relation to the tour, so I did end up spending quite a bit. But it’s worth it to get some unique and special souvenirs. Some of the items I bought at the attraction on the day, and some I bought later from their online store, because there was no way I could carry everything I wanted home from the tour, and there were a few things I couldn’t find in the gift shop there anyway. So I hope you enjoy seeing all the things that I bought.

With everything else going on in 2017, I never got around to posting about the new DVDs and Blu-rays that I purchased during the year. So in this post and video, I want to give a quick update on the newest titles in my collection. And then, during 2018, I want to try and get into the habit of doing a monthly favourites post, about things I’ve bought and seen in general.
So I hope you enjoy this update and that there are things in here you enjoy too. And if there’s other stuff you think I should check out, feel free to let me know!
